When I came aross the readme for Lynx. It mentioned that can be run on OS/2 EMX.
Would someone please tell me what is OS/2 EMX ? Does it refer to a particular version of OS/2 or specific section in different versions of OS/2 ?
Thanks in advance.
I would say that is poor documentation you are reading. What it means, is that you need to run OS/2 (or eCS) as the operating system and have the EMX runtime installed. Lynx is a text-based web browser. I believe it was originally designed for MS-DOS (and Unix systems not running X-Windows). It worked fine, until the web became increasingly more graphical. If you use Lynx, you will scroll through a lot of text "[image],[image],[image]", where text replaces images.
The EMX runtime can be downloaded from Hobbes OS/2 repository at New Mexico State University (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu). eCS includes EMX runtime.
